Dropkick from Blackheart at bell, and she manages to stay away from the larger wrestler for a time. But after dodging a boot in the corner, she goozles Shotzi and slams her down. Raquel gets Blackheart over her shoulder and stretches her there. She eventually drops her over the top rope and goes for a ladder. Shotzi catches up and sends Gonzalez face first into the ladder, then runs the ropes back in the ring to kick it into her. Blackheart slides the ladder into the ring. When she sees her opponent getting up, she launches a crossbody but gets caught and dropped on the ladder! Shotzi recovers quick to jump on Raquel’s back, but she gets carried around the ring. They battle on the other side of the ring, where Blackheart counters to send Gonzalez into the steel steps. She catches the fence when thrown and coffin drops back onto Raquel, but the heel is finally able to boot her into the post as we go PiP.
After more clobbering, Gonzalez moves the ladder into the ring, and that’s when Shotzi recovers to attack again. An exchange leaves Blackheart collecting herself, which lets Raquel get another ring from under the ring and slide it in. They’re fighting over that through the ropes when we return to full screen. The ladder is set on the apron, and Blackheart floats over for a DDT that is supposed to look like it puts Raquel face first into the ladder. Her follow-up doesn’t work, and Shotzi gets slung face first into the apron. Gonzalez picks up the steel steps and hits Blackheart with them.

They take turns climbing until Shotzi tips over the ladder. Gonzalez kicks ladder into Shotzi’s midsection, but misses with her next attack. A cannonball into Raquel’s back bends it in bad looking fashion. Gonzalez rolls out, and Blackheart flies from the top and both women are down!
